Aikido for Children DVD by Bruce Bookman
This is the companion to "Teaching Aikido to Children" by Bruce Bookman. This is a study guide for children that tutors them through all the testing requirements of the Seattle Aikikai children's program. Bookman Sensei is featured demonstrating all the testing requirements with an adult uke partner. The terminology is superimposed on the screen as Bookman sensei narrates. Techniques are shown in slow motion and at normal speed repeated from different camera angle. A great study guide for adults too!
Length: 53 min.
Adults can benefit too. Sometimes a Sensei may not be as patient with an adult and conversely the adult may hesitate to ask for clarification on a technique. I bought this DVD hoping to bridge that gap in my own training especially regarding testing requirements and I was not disappointed. Instead of searching You Tube for videos I can put in my dvd and pause, rewind and replay at my leisure. When my dojo reopens fully after this pandemic I will be able to take my Kyu test with confidence.
